My 73 stock 1600 recently started to slightly back fire and stumble under load at 2500 rpm in second gear and slightly in third. I drained the gas tank and installed a new fuel filter and checked the plugs, carb settings, exaust/intake adjusted, checked for any vacum leaks all seems fine the guy I got the GT from is telling me it has to be the ethanol 10% pump gas. I am heading out tommorrow to buy 10 gallons on 92 octian ethanol free gas. I am being told by the folks at Lee oil company that should fix it and run a lot better any one having this problem. The engine only has 175 miles since being rebuilt.
I usually think of bad or to low grade fuel as causing detonation or preignition (knocking), but well let us know how it works out...
Also might check for a tight exhaust valve, worn distributer bushings, arcing spark plug wires etc. Also sometimes an exhaust leak will cause backfire bit that is usually on deceleration in my experience.

kitcarguy: dx1 There is no way to tell what year the body is. The Dataplate (if there is one) will not give you any useful info.
